Natalie Dormer may finally reprise her role as Moriarty in Season 6 of “Elementary.”

Executive producer Rob Doherty teased to TVLine that Moriarty’s return to the show could be just around the corner. “With respect to Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller), we’re working hard to see an old flame come back to the show,” Doherty said at CBS’ summer press soiree.

While Doherty didn’t mention Moriarty’s name, the showrunner did say that the mystery ex “may or may not lead a league of assassins — or once led a league of assassins,” which is outright confirmation that he’s indeed referring to Dormer’s character. At the London Film and Comic Con last month, Dormer also said (via Radio Times) that the chances of her going back to “Elementary” are “pretty high.”

At the same convention, Dormer revealed that she actually had no idea that she would be playing the role of Moriarty when she agreed to join the series. “[Doherty] offered me the role [of Irene Adler] straight off but he didn’t tell me I was Moriarty,” the 35-year-old English actress shared. “It was a stroke of genius. He told me before we started shooting but he just offered me Irene Adler [first]. The icing on the cake was ‘Oh, you’re the first ever female Moriarty’ so it’s very, very cool.”

Despite the gender-swapping, Dormer thinks that the CBS series remains true to the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes stories. “What Rob Doherty did with Irene and Moriarty I think is very clever and just a reimagining of the wealth and texture of the writing,” Dormer said. “Because if you know the books, then [you know] Moriarty and Sherlock are sort of dependent on one another, they are two guys who exist to beat the other one, so the idea of putting an ex-love affair, to make people obsessed about each other, is actually a very shrewd clever writing move, so I think it was very intelligent. And it brings Sherlock Holmes to a whole new generation.”

Few days ago ‘Elementary’ executive producer Rob Doherty revealed to Entertainment Weekly that “the return of a very familiar face is in the works”. In his own words, producers of the show are “working on bringing back a beloved member of the Elementary family. The odds are quite good.”

One of the faces which fans of the show should remember is Jamie Moriarty/Irene Adler played by Natalie in season 1 and 2 (last time we’ve seen her on the screen in 12th episode). Moriarty character has not been seen in last two seasons due to Dormer’s busy work schedule but now, after Margaery’s tragic death and Doherty’s spoiler words, speculations about her return to the show blow again.

Last November Doherty spoke about possible return of Moriarty to the show, but at that time Natalie was still working on ‘In Darkness’ which she’ll start shoot next month. “I reached out to Natalie recently because I did have some ideas and was hoping we’d be able to see her towards the end of the Season 4. But she is acting in a movie (‘In Darkness’) that she co-wrote” – he told back then TV Line. “She is a friend of the show, for sure, and we love having her around. So at the moment, the odds are slim, but the door is not shut.”

Doherty spoke again about possible return of Natalie’s character in November 2015 during New York Comic Con ‘Elementary’ Panel: “Natalie has proven to be as elusive as Moriarty. Actually, we had the opportunity to talk a few weeks ago, to discuss a few possible scenarios for a return … but it presents obviously some logistical problems for us. But we’ll stay in touch and see what we can cook up.”

Jonny Lee Miller, who plays Sherlock on the series, added: “We shoot this show all year anyway, so when she stops working, we’ll still be working”.

Is that mean that we will see Natalie in ‘Elementary’ again? We’ll see. Season 5 will premiere on CBS on October 2, 2016.

Creator of Elementary, Robert Doherty has confirmed in a recent interview that Natalie will not be returning to the show this season. He has however praised Natalie saying “We could not adore her more.”

Eonline – Robert Doherty, creator and showrunner of the CBS drama Elementary, took the stage with the bosses of three other CBS dramas at the TCA press tour on Wednesday to talk about the show.

Doherty was asked about the BBC series but says he hasn’t seen it. In terms of his own ideas for the famous detective, Doherty said he was drawn to the idea of a “broken Sherlock Holmes…a guy who is trying very hard to get back to where he was. We try to stay true to the darkness of the character.”
